EDIT: Must be an error with Isabella or Alexander Jr's age..
 
Thanks Geoff.

Maiden name might be Graham.

Don't know if they died in NZ or Australia.

My tree didn't load correctly into the software so I ran a check and repair and it could not repair the database. I restored a copy I made yesterday and it contains the error. I've had to restore a copy that is 4 days old so I've lost some data but no idea what.

Yeah, worst nightmare...

Years ago I used my own software using Word and Excel and inserting Hyperlinks for the index of ancestors, works well for a small/medium basic tree..

To cut a long story short I use RM 6 now, does everything I want it to, I also back up to a separate HD every time new info is added, copy also available on main HD. Also used FTM in the past, not impressed, of course that is no longer supported now.

NOT SURE?

I don't see how Calder and Weirick fit in.

Andrew's brothers are John, Samuel and Sydney.

Uncle, William Graham; to leave our Chapel,

I take that to read that only Mr Hendy is the nephew and that spouse of Ellen had died (unknown name and date at the moment) and spouse of Florence had died (Alexander 1918 ) and spouse of Frances had died (Andrew 1909).

Names are usually listed in order by relationship and age.

We are missing some births.

Agnes (married HYLAND) born 1875 in NZ but Ellen and Isabella and Frances are older ???


We don't have the GRAHAM family in 1851 and 1861 yet or their arrival in NZ.

I can't see the CALDER or WEIRICK marriage in NZ or NSW or Qld. or Vic. or England.
